Upcoming Rutgers-Camden Conference on Experiential Learning Abroad (March 4, 2013)
To the Campus Community:
Global learning is an important component of contemporary higher education. Increasingly, this activity is becoming a defining characteristic of the Rutgers–Camden experience.
I invite you to participate in a conference titled Experiential Learning Abroad that will be held on our campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 12.
This conference will explore various forms of international experiential learning including service learning, internships, and field experiences undertaken around the globe. The conference also will highlight important achievements in this area by Rutgers–Camden faculty, students, and staff while providing an opportunity for us to hear from leading national and international experts in the field. Speakers and panels will examine international experiential programs in a wide variety of disciplines and explore the challenges involved in designing and executing effective programs.
Information and a link to the registration site are located here: http://www.camden.rutgers.edu/international-conference. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. We expect participants from across New Jersey and the greater Philadelphia region, so I encourage you to register soon.
Faculty, staff, and students are invited to submit proposals for posters to be displayed during the conference. Proposals may be submitted through the registration site. Posters might highlight a specific program through photographs, data, or other means. The deadline for submitting poster proposals is Friday, March 15.
This conference represents an opportunity to celebrate and advance our work at the intersection of two of our community’s key initiatives: civic engagement—our commitment to communities beyond the campus—and campus internationalization. I hope to see many of you there.
Wendell E. Pritchett, J.D., Ph.D.
